Seeing Dots: CAS-ual Fridays Challenge #56

Couldn't go without entering the current challenge at CAS-ual Fridays: to create a CAS project using polka dots!  I think I love using polka dots as much as gingham on my cards :) 



I needed a card for a high school graduation party we are attending this weekend (Can you believe there were 300 people invited to this party???!!  Yikes!!).  I assembled a few sentiments from the Paper Smooches set Sentiment Sampler on an acrylic block then randomly stamped and white embossed them on a piece of white cs.  The numbers were cut using Cricut Keystone cart from Echo Park pp.  The grad cap is a $1 bin stamp from Vap! Scrap.  I tied the little "diploma" with twine from Doodlebug Designs.
Other Materials Used: Papertrey ink cs, W R Memory Keepers corner chomper, Making Memories black brad, Michael's cs

Thanks for all your sweet comments!
